More friends, less family
Generally, the majority of individuals who live in the city have moved away from their family and have settled in the city for either work, more opportunities, or some other reason. That being said, most of these individuals don’t have their families there with them to hang out with. To make up for this, these invididuals usually have a great amount of friends to make up for the loss of family time, and they bring these friends into their relationships. This doesn’t necessarily mean that individuals who live in heavily-populated areas don’t allow their partners to meet their family, but given the circumstances, it can be difficult to find the time for them to meet their families.
Online dating sites
Compared to online dating sites in rural areas, city online dating is the exact opposite. It can sometimes even be overwhelming because of the hundreds of matches you get from dating companies, and maintaining the time to go on all of these dates also gets overwhelming. Because of this, many people tend to not use online dating sites in heavily-populated areas and would actually prefer going out with their friends to find people that they’re compatible with. This works better for most people who live in city areas because it allows them to get to know the person physically instead of just emotionally over the screen of a phone. Some people say that relationships last longer when they’re based off of a combination of both friendship as well as communication. Most people just prefer that the communication be face-to-face rather than over the phone.
